    https://www.linkedin.com/

    Do any of you linkers use Linkedin. I've just been turned on to this.

    Just started using this. In addition to it being a great networking tool, I've been able to catch up with old colleagues I've lost touch with over the years.

    Last Friday I was asked by a professional colleague to join her network.

    Then yesterday a college classmate asked me to join her.

    Then later in the day another former college classmate asked and I started to see a pattern.

    The first person had one person that all four of us know.

    I then got really curious and started playing around. Suddenly there were about twenty or so people that I know and had lost touch with. I asked a co-worker and he casually said, "oh yeah I've been using that for a while." I'm always the last to findout about these kind of things

    So I started this thread here to see if anyone else knew of this and if there are tips that can be shared.

    I'm on it too. It's great for keeping track of colleagues in your industry, as well as former co-workers who you might otherwise lose track of. I was able to use LinkedIn to track down someone to use as a reference in a job interview, and I ended up getting the job.

    It's all work related though. My user name isn't BlueEyedMurder66. LOL

    I'm on it. I just had an old buddy of mine who I worked with in NYC track me down on it, turns out he's now in London. I know I haven't used it for its full potential yet.
    Nothing to see here.

    I just got home from a networking event and was talking with a very well known lawyer. I mentioned Linkedin just as a co-worker of mine walked up to us and heard me make mention of it and trashed it. I was kind of embarrassed, more for my co-worker than me.
